Oral Answers to Questions — Cyprus: Marketing Scheme (26 Jan 1944)

Sir Alfred Beit: Is my right hon. and gallant Friend aware that the two municipalities mentioned in the Question are dominated by a party called the Working People's Reform Party? Cannot representations be made to them, to take action on behalf of the people they pretend to represent, rather than on behalf of the transport owners and greengrocers, who are also among their supporters?

Oral Answers to Questions — Field Marshal Smuts' Speech ( 7 Dec 1943)

Business of the House ( 3 Dec 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: With regard to the second Sitting Day, will there be any further Amendment called, or will it be a continuation of the general Debate?

Dominion Affairs ( 2 Dec 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: I beg to move, at the end of the Question, to add: But humbly regret that it has not yet been possible definitely to arrange for an Imperial Conference to consider the closer cohesion of the Commonwealth and Empire after the war. In opening this Debate on Dominion affairs, I feel, though I may not look like, the sleeping beauty waking and stretching herself after her long slumbers, for more...

Dominion Affairs ( 2 Dec 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: I was not far wrong. Naturally I was taking into account the existing French population as well as later immigration from other parts of Europe. This rapid assimilation will take place, and has already taken place in the British Commonwealth, in the case of Europeans who have migrated since the advent of British power, thus offsetting, together with British emigrants, the separatist...

Dominion Affairs ( 2 Dec 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: —perhaps the most startling exploit since the days of Vasco da Gama.

Dominion Affairs ( 2 Dec 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: I recognise the fact, and I did make an exception in the case of a few Colonial experts.

Dominion Affairs ( 2 Dec 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: This party also had its committee on Imperial affairs, but there have been times when Imperial discussions in this House have tended to become moribund. I very much hope that as a result of the war and the greater interest brought about by the lessons of the war, the people who have had an opportunity that they otherwise would not have had of seeing the Empire will take a greater interest,...

Dominion Affairs ( 2 Dec 1943)

Dominion Affairs ( 2 Dec 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: Once again, I do not think I am being unfair. I was merely recording my general impression. We have only to look around at these benches to see that there is not a very great attendance at the present moment.

Dominion Affairs ( 2 Dec 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: The impression I used to have at one time—but I am glad to be able to add that it has been corrected by what was said by the hon. Member for Seaham—was that hon. Members opposite would like to leave undeveloped in the possession of small native populations territories which, if properly developed, could be capable of supporting great, modern communities of vast size. That is the...

Dominion Affairs ( 2 Dec 1943)

Sir Alfred Beit: I would make it clear that when speaking about Empire Regional Councils I was not referring to the International Regional Councils which came up in another context in a speech by the Secretary of State for the Colonies and which I entirely support. I want to get Empire Regional Counicls going first. These would be an association of the various British Governments within a given area, Crown,...

Dominion Affairs ( 2 Dec 1943)

Oral Answers to Questions — Sir Oswald and Lady Mosley (Release) (23 Nov 1943)

Oral Answers to Questions — Africa and 1939–43 Stars ( 4 Nov 1943)
